If you love Mary Roach, you are going to adore Caitlin Doughty. She is a funeral director known for her fascinating, hilarious YouTube series Ask a Mortician. Her mission: To convince the masses that a preoccupation with the macabre isn’t a red flag, but a healthy way of alleviating anxiety and coming to terms with mortality. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is a memoir about her first crematory job in Oakland, and how she wound up “America’s (Kinda Dark) Sweetheart.” I love every page of this book, and I can’t wait to recommend it to everyone I know.
